The last post was very therapeutic for me. Although I am certain that the person who it was meant for did not read it. I spent a terrific evening with some friends from college, their kids, and my sons. And even though I won't retract the letter from the last post - I still mean EVERY word - I think that I would like to post a different letter. Something much more positive to reflect how I am feeling after a wonderful evening and morning with friends.
This year has been very challenging in a not so great way, but I think I have learned some very valuable lessons and have also been shown time and time again that people are capable of much kindness
To Steve the furnace guy who installed my furnace: thank you for not barging me a bazillion dollars, for doing the job quickly, and for hauling away the refrigerator in my basement.
To the wonderful people at my sons' school who look after my sons after an before school: thank you for making my sons do their homework and providing them with a social outlet.
To my parents who are always supportive and who love me no matter what crazy decision I may make.
To my sons who I could not live without. I love you so much it hurts.
To the kindness of strangers: there are so many instances that I cannot count. When I start to lose faith in humanity, someone does something nice that restores that faith.
To my college friends Laura, Michelle, Rick, and Barry: thank you for coming to my rescue and making this holiday season, which could have been SO miserable, a memorable and happy one! I am indebted to your friendship and kindness.
